    Default BMW Streetguard

    Is there anybody on here that has experience of the Streetguard jackets.

    Specifically, I would like to know if the neck is uncomfortable. Does it get better with use?

    Thanks

    What is uncomfortable in the neck area? Is the fabric scratching? Is there too much neck in the jacket and choking? What's up?
    Have you tried wearing a balaclava or buff to mitigate any irritation?

    Hi Slip Stream,

    I have not ridden with the jacket. I tried it on and sat on a bike with it. I just felt that the neck was too long and pushed against the bottom of the helmet, especially when sitting on the bike.

    I think that with the neck of the jacket pushing against the helmet , it may become quite an irritation on a long trip.

    Look it is obviously a good quality jacket, but pricey. So one has to be sure that you are going to be comfortable before you spend that kind of money.

    Any input will be appreciated.

    If the neck is too long on the jacket, even with softening with use it will still be too long and cause that irritation by rubbing on your helmet which will also start to wear on the textile lining on the bottom edge.

    Possibly keep looking at other options on jackets...
